The Aspen Tank – Another Light Summer Blouse

Welcome to the Seen & Sewn Together blog tour.

Arielle from Seen & Sewn Patterns is creating patterns with a focus on encouraging people to join the #handmaderevolution by sewing their own handmade wardrobe.

A nice group of sewing bloggers have joined together to share with you how we’ve taken the Seen & Sewn Patterns and let our creativity loose with them. We want to inspire you whether you’re just starting or well on your way to building your handmade wardrobe.

The extra fun part for you is that we have a prize pack giveaway from Seen & Sewn Patterns that you can enter below. The prize pack for US residents includes 1 pattern of choice, a Slow Fashion Tee, and a Slow Fashion Pin. For our international readers the prize pack would include a copy of all Seen & Sewn PDF Patterns. Bonus! All readers will receive a coupon code for up to two patterns of choice for $1 each (expires 6/30/19). 


One of my favorite summer things is a light airy blouse and I truly think you can never have too many! It was a busy spring, finishing up pre-k homeschooling and getting our new house the way we want. The walls and floors in all the main areas have been redone and the bedrooms have also seen a bit of work. It’s time for a much needed break and some quality time with my sewing machine!


I made this Aspen Tank out of some dobby crepe with beautiful drape. It’s so lightweight and flowy!


The only adjustment I made to the pattern was to increase the bodice length by 3.5″ (as recommended in the pattern) to accomodate a larger cup size.


I love how comfortable it is and I’m definitely looking forward to trying another one, maybe with the cute cap sleeves! Also I’m sure it will be great with a pair of shorts for that homeschool mom life that’s been keeping me so hectic…
